REMINDER!! We are now collecting money for the Fircanos Pizza Restaurant After Party on Saturday night, Dec. 6th, right after the Tree. The party will begin promptly after the production is over (giving you a bit of time to say hello to your people that have come to the show as well as to drive over there…which is approximately 9:00-9:15pm ish.)

The party will last no longer than 11pm. Please have rides picking you up as the Fircanos Staff will be ready to go home as will the choir staff! Additionally, if you aren’t through the doors by 9:30pm, don’t expect all the pizza and pop you can inhale! Only those that are timely will enjoy that experience!

Tickets are going to be just $5 for any choir or Tree orchestra student (they are really $9 each but we going to offset the cost using choir snack store money…that’s around $1,000 cost people!)

 

When you pay, your name will be added to a list. We will use that list to check you in at the party. Sorry, but no significant others are allowed, as we typically PACK the place and we enjoy an exclusive deal with Fircanos! Only choir and Tree orchestra kids may enter so do not bring others as they will be turned away. We will not use tickets this year….to easy to lose or forget them!

ADDITIONAL TREE INFO: 

 

REMINDER!! From our Tree Co-Chairperson and head of Tree Construction, John Patrick

  1. We need 8- 10 student volunteers that can lift heavy objects

  2. You will need to be at the Bus building on Norton and McCracken (across from Norton Mini-Mart)

  3. Meet by the gate where the busses are parked

  4. At the following days and times:

a.    Saturday November 29 at 11:00 am

b.    Sunday December 7th at 12:30 pm

  1. Also, is it possible for these and maybe other students to go back to the Frauenthal on these days immediately after the above times to help load chairs and steel, etc into the semi trailer? We are running low on volunteers so far this year so some students helping with the loading will be a GREAT help! 

  2. Extra Credit Points are available for helping out…3 points per hour worked, just like helping with the set construction for Allegros or Pop Go the Sailors!

Finally, if you (or your parent) is interested/willing to help during the construction or deconstruction of Tree, that would be awesome as well! Students aren’t allowed to build the Tree but there are tons of other jobs to be done. Tree Construction Volunteers are at a low right now….Here are the comparison stats from last to this year:

 

Volunteer Numbers Compared to last year:           2013    2014

·         11/29  Saturday   9:00am – 2:00pm                     21        18

·         11/30  Sunday      9:00am – 8:00pm                      42        28

·         12/07  Sunday      9:00am – 6:00pm                     29        19

The times above will vary based on the number of people and how fast construction goes.

Stay as long as your schedule allows.

Contact John Patrick at jasp49441@comcast.net or 616-638-0973 if you can help out! Both students and parents are more than welcome! 

 

There are sign up sheets for all of this on the cabinet doors in the choir room. Please consider donating some time for your project! A copy of the forms is also here if you want to check out the needs:

REMINDER!  Jessica Fogle aka Jessica in The Rainbow is about to host her 3rd and final CD release show in Chicago (November 30th) and after that the album will be available online via Bandcamp.  In the meantime, here’s her final sales pitch to you… are you one of those people who finds Jessica’s words about life or self-esteem or being yourself COMFORTING? :)  If so, you should buy this album for ONLY $10!  It’s already been played on Grand Rapids radio (WYCE 88.1) and is getting a little buzz there.  If you are someone who stresses out over ridiculous unimportant things, you should listen to this on repeat for 6 months.  :)  But seriously, it’s mostly about the words.  And some amazing cello parts written by Hunter Zhao (worth the price alone).  Support the independent arts.  Buy it for your parents for xmas.  Consider it a donation to a starving artist (disclaimer: this job doesn’t pay much, for someone in debt with a masters degree in music…).  I still have a few tshirts left for sale too.  THANKS EVERYONE! Oh and like me on Facebook too, kay?  Bye!

REMINDER!  Jessica Fogle aka Jessica in The Rainbow is about to host her 3rd and final CD release show in Chicago (November 30th) and after that the album will be available online via Bandcamp.  In the meantime, here’s her final sales pitch to you… are you one of those people who finds Jessica’s words about life or self-esteem or being yourself COMFORTING? :)  If so, you should buy this album for ONLY $10!  It’s already been played on Grand Rapids radio (WYCE 88.1) and is getting a little buzz there.  If you are someone who stresses out over ridiculous unimportant things, you should listen to this on repeat for 6 months.  :)  But seriously, it’s mostly about the words.  And some amazing cello parts written by Hunter Zhao (worth the price alone).  Support the independent arts.  Buy it for your parents for xmas.  Consider it a donation to a starving artist (disclaimer: this job doesn’t pay much, for someone in debt with a masters degree in music…).  I still have a few tshirts left for sale too.  THANKS EVERYONE! Oh and like me on Facebook too, kay?  Bye!

Hey there everyone!  I’m trying an experiment… it may not work.  If it does, and it’s worth it, I’ll consider making more of these.  Possibly in smaller pieces, or just the hard parts…

So here it is, to my knowledge (possibly not 100% perfect), all the bass parts for tree.  In order.  Narrated by me.

ENJOY!

REMINDER! HEY MONA SHORES CHOIR ALUMNI!!! I (former MSHS Choir Singer, Kyle Karum) am organizing an octet to perform in Spring Lake, MI on Saturday, December 6, 2014. I know many of our alumni will be in town for The Singing Christmas Tree. So if you’re planning on seeing Tree on Friday, PLEASE consider! This performance will consist of only one piece and it would be a part of a Stephen Kellogg (singer/songwriter) concert. The piece is called “Thanksgiving.” The song features a choir at the very beginning and at the very end. Here is a YouTube link of the piece. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USkmGDURmSU. This is going to be an all around great music experience! Those who volunteer will receive free admission to the concert and more. Contact Kyle Karum at kyle.karum@gmail.com or on Facebook. Thanks!

REMINDER! Attention NYC travelers. We will begin signing up for our roommates today (FRIDAY) immediately after school, so begin thinking about that. We have posted a list on the wall if you are not sure who you might room with while there. There will be 5 groups of 3 for the guys as well as 2 groups of two. For the girls, you will sign up in groups of 3 and one group of two.

It is in your best interest to try and sign up in groups of three, because if you all sign up in singles or in doubles, we (the adults) will have to fill your rooms with the remaining people to make 3 threes. We cannot guarantee, in any way, that if you sign up in a group of two, that you won’t be split to fill the other rooms with three…
